We strongly support the addition of the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES) to the DHS core questionnaire. This indicator is included in the SUN MEAL Results Framework and there is a great need for internationally comparable data on a standard measure of food insecurity. To date, data are publicly available for only 24 of 60 SUN countries. The ability to further disaggregate the data by specific subgroups will also provide more useful information for country-level policy and programme decision makers.
